Without prejudice to Article 17(2) of Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008, the name of the substance must appear on the label in the form of one of the designations given in Part 3 of Annex VI to that Regulation.
In that Part, use is sometimes made of a general description such as ‘… compounds’ or ‘… salts’. In this case, the supplier who places such a substance on the market is required to state on the label the correct name, due account being taken of Section 184.108.40.206 of Annex VI to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008.
Some substances (acids, bases, etc.) are placed on the market in aqueous solutions at various concentrations and, therefore, these solutions require different classification and labelling since the hazards vary at different concentrations.
Some organic substances may be marketed either in a specific isomeric form or as a mixture of several isomers.
Certain substances which are susceptible to spontaneous polymerisation or decomposition are generally placed on the market in a stabilised form. It is in this form that they are listed in Part 3 of Annex VI to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008.
However, such substances are sometimes placed on the market in a non-stabilised form. In this case, supplier who places such a substance on the market must state on the label the name of the substance followed by the words ‘non-stabilised’.
